Viral load is a measure of poz health but it is increasingly become a measure of risk. But Bob Leahy says competing arguments, opinions and agendas aren’t helping people living with HIV figure out what’s safe, what isn’t and what’s in between.

Managing risk,sex and undetectable viral load.

Being a person living with HIV isn’t always easy but one thing that makes it easier is having information  - clear, precise and understandable information  - that we can live our lives around.  That’s sometimes problematic because HIV is a complex disease with complicated repercussions.  Take the criminalization aspect, for instance.  The laws governing disclosure of one’s HIV status are becoming so convoluted, so less black and white by the month, that confusion

PositiveLite’s Brian Finch and Bob Leahy were both involved in the delivery of Ontario’s HIV Stigma.com campaign of 2008-9. Now the HIV prevention campaign’s findings have received international attention.

Reliving our victories

September 15, 2008 found me feeling rather lost and out of place in a dull-looking buidling, at least from the exterior, but which housed an impressively professional looking movie studio.  We were in an industrial area of East York (Toronto). I was there to film an interview for Top Drawer Creative, the ad agency GMSH (Gay Men’s Sexual Health Alliance) had engaged to produce the campaign for us. It was an intimidating set-up.

In which Bob Leahy cuts to the chase and looks at circumcision and whether it still has any relevance at all to HIV transmission in gay men.

THE UNKINDEST CUT OF ALL

Boy, this is a murky topic, but I’ll do my best to wade through the last four years of facts, fiction, opinion and debate on the impact of circumcision on HIV transmission between men who have sex with men (MSM). Let’s start in 2006. That’s when large scale research studies conducted in Africa were telling us that circumcision is indeed effective in substantially reducing HIV infection rates. BUT the study referred only to heterosexual boinking. Bill Clinton jumps in to the fray at the I

In which Bob Leahy gives a Hi-5 to CATIE and to the OHTN for their collaborations with the little site that could.

OHTN and CATIE give PositiveLite.com the nod

I can’t think of much better news to kick off World AIDS Week than to hear that CATIE is now collaborating with PositiveLite in a similar fashion to what the OHTN announced that they would be doing earlier this month.
